Full description
Visit the iconic Colosseum and be transported back to the Roman Empire. Stand in the amphitheater that was once the entertainment center of the city, hosting fights between gladiators and even wild animals imported from Africa and the Middle East.  At the nearby Forum, your guide will regale you with stories of political intrigue, betrayal, and triumph. See what once was the heart of day-to-day life and explore the remains of the most important buildings and spaces of one of the greatest ancient settlements. If you choose the express tour, you'll skip the Forum visit for a 2-hour tour that gives you more time afterwards to explore Rome on your own. Then, discover Palatine Hill, where the legendary Romulus is believed to have founded the city. It became the location of the houses of affluent Romans and then home to the emperors. The ruins are impressive and the view over the Circus Maximus is a must-see.

It was a really good tour and the chap that did it was very knowledgable. Unfortunately we couldn’t stay until the end as we had assumed it was two hours but it went on a lot longer. If this had been told to us when booking we would have known to expect a longer afternoon. The colleseum part was really good.

This was a fantastic tour. Easy to book and the meeting point was easy to find with great communication once we were there. Our guide Richard was a great blend of information and humour. No question was too much for him and his in depth knowledge really was refreshing through the entire tour. Then at the end we had a Q&A session, and he then answered questions on places to eat, other places to visit and so on. A real asset.

We had the tour guide Maria, who made this tour unforgettable, she was interesting and passionate about what she was telling us, it made it so much more enjoyable to see and to hear about it. I feel like we learned a lot about the history of the collosem, Roman forum and Paletine Hill
